Black about half an inch long and hop like a grass hopper.
We have had two in our house. I do not like the look of them, they also have what looks like pincers on the rear end. Both are now dead with the Raid spray. Do you know what they are?

Some sort of beetle perhaps? There are a lot of them about!
The house centipedes are on the march now too. Ugh!
Pass me the raid. :A1:

no idea what they are possibly just a variety of grasshopper, but their numbers will increase as it heats up, i usually have loads in the summer, but despite the pincers they are harmless.

Oh Itchy these are the ones I mentioned to you earlier they come in 100's - No they are not very nice but I understand they are harmless. Keep the ant power around the doors and windows

I wonder if its those things we get in the summer they are black to and jump, I don't like them at all and if its exceptionally hot we get loads the locals don't seem to mind them and the chickens love them dead or alive but I don't know what they are, they usually come out at night.

We stayed at a hotel a few years back where these things covered a wall so in effect a white wall was black.

We have a Ultra Violet light for killing them but when they get trapped and are burnt they stink something rotten :Cry3:

A big black beetle came in the lounge tonight and looked me up and down and walked away, but not before Annette had him with the Raid spray. Makes me wonder what else will creep out of the woodwork in the next few months, not watching any more of those nature programs on TV until they go away and give us a rest. If things carry on like this that Attenbrough man will be around next with a TV team to do some filming, must remember to have a shave tomorrow just in case!

This one is a nasty b****r and people will need hospital treatment if one bites.



The litter picker is available Kaufland costing 2 Lev on special offer do not attempt to stand on them in bare feet or think they are dead when cut in half, they act like a worm. They die when sprayed with raid. Do NOT pick up with bare hands.

Poisonous centipedes attack residents of Varna March 2011



Invasion of the so-called kolopendri thrown into consternation residents of the seaside town, notify correspondents of the "
Calendar"
. The local toxicology has already registered several cases of bites.

Skolopendri sinister love dark, moist places and in adulthood can reach 20 centimetres in length. Their bite is very similar to the snake - and the type and intensity of pain.

The venom is not lethal but leads to severe swelling, fainting, and occurs in children dramatically and often secondary infections. The most urgent measure in the bite - cold compress and medical assistance.

Skolopendrite plague all families living in the area. People have decided to seek help from the municipality and health services, because they themselves can not cope with poisonous centipedes.

I Just got a reply from Dr Pavel Stoev, zoologist, curator of non-insect invertebrates collections.

Hi Ashley,

ldentification of centipedes on photos is rather difficult. If these photos were taken in bulgaria than the species is Ā§colopendra cingulata. Bites could be paintfull but cannot cause serios health problems unless person has alergies to insect stings in general. Hope this info would be of any help.
Best wishes
Pavel

Think i'll just wack all centipeds instead of identifying them, might be safer. Has anyone found any crickets yet this year? my lizards getting hungry and we haven't got them yet.
